Brooklyn, New Yo...
Black A-line (?!) dress with white ‘petal’ or scalloped collar. I stole the design from Hobbs.
I used the Zoe pattern as a base and changed it into a one piece on the front and back, The collar in the original is actually detachable, so I had alot of pfaff trying to sew it in with the facing. I got quite lazy with the scalloping – lesson learned, never be lazu when doing scallop edges! and also somewhat lazy with the running stitch detail, but I like to think it makes it less formal that way.
Synthetic fibres, one long zip, embroidery thread.
Hobbs – for their original one that I created this from (mine cost £15 to make).
The uber cheap fabric shop on Atlantic Road in Brixton.
